Our band Peter O’Halloran & The Hired Men has been playing in some shape or form since around 2008. We perform at a small number of live venues each year due to the varied personal lives of all the members. Therefore we’ve never had the opportunity to get into a studio an record anything properly (yet).

Our buddies at Rum Bar Records have been creative about releasing material from various artists in response to COVID-19. We hatched the idea of releasing some of our practice recordings captured over the years and were able to put it out there as a free download in the hopes of cheering folks up in these trying times.
